Introduction: Through this lab we were looking to understand the theory that applies to rotational motion for objects under constant torque. The torque is applied by the rotating disc or cylinder by the string attached to a falling weight. The frequency is being read every two seconds. The frequency is used to calculate the angular velocity of the disk in radians per second. In part I of the lab we are determine the rotational inertia of rotating bodies by measuring their angular acceleration and comparing the measurement with rotational inertia. In part II of the experiment, we are calculating the energy loss of the system compared to the mechanical energy at two points. The definition of torque is defined as Τ =Fr 1 ; r is the shortest distance between the line of F and axis of rotation. The rotational inertia for a

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
